Can You Case It #80 – Sketch

It’s Sunday and time for the first challenge after Stampin’ Up!’s national convention in Salt Lake City.  Today we have a sketch challenge.  We all hope you will play along by going to for the sketch and inspiration.  You have until noon Friday, July 31st to enter.

Here’s my creation…


and a little peek at the inside…


This masculine stamp set just intrigues me and especially the fox.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Basic Grey, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock, plus Designer Series Neutrals DSP
  • Ink:  Memento Black
  • Stamps:  The Wilderness Awaits
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Burlap Ribbon, Greeting Thinlets, 1 3/8″ and 1 1/2″ Square Punch


  • The Basic Grey base card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • The DSP layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″ and attached to base card with a layer of fun foam underneath to lift this layer with Tomboy Glue
  • The Basic Black squares are 1 1/2″ and the Whisper White squares at 1 3/8″
  • Stamp just the heads of each animal with Memento Black on the Whisper White squares and then attach with adhesive to Basic Black 1 1/2″ squares.  Add dimensionals to each square and spaced evenly at top 1/3 of card front
  • Cut the Burlap ribbon 4″ and fray the edges to create a fringed edge and attach to bottom of card front with Tomboy Glue
  • Cut “cheers” with thinlet from Basic Black add to burlap with small dots of Tomboy Glue on back.  Place a stack of acrylic blocks over the sentiment until it drys.
  • Inside there are three layers and a stamp of the whole fox (he’s my favorite)

This card may look a little complicated but honestly it goes together easily.  Hope you enjoyed and you’ll jump over to and enter your creation based on this week’s sketch.  It’s fun, I promise!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…



Hope your fingers are inky like mine…and you are HaPpY!
